Shirley, I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling your pain. My kids are younger, but it doesn't change the fact that I (very) often feel like a failure as a homeschool mom (and a mom in general) and that I also often feel that my kids are just being lazy and squandering all the opportunities they are given. I wish I had words of wisdom, but really all I have is sympathy and empathy. My sister has been hs'ing for over 20 years now and she has been through this with more than one of her children. If only there were a way that we didn't have to bear the pressure of their outcome on ourselves. Don't give up on your son. My parents were content to let me be lazy, and I longed for them to set parameters. I have so many regrets about not giving my best during my years of study. Pray about which battles you should choose and then obey the Holy Spirit when He encourages you to stay quiet or to speak up. Either way, trust that Lord IS in control and that ultimately your son's character is more important that anything else.
You are certainly not alone.
